Arrow keys do not get sent to host from Fedora client to MicroServer ILO

I have an HP MicroServer N40L with the latest BIOS and ILO firmware installed as of the writing of this post. It is running CentOS 6.2. I can access the ILO over HTTP fine using both Fedora 14 and Windows 7 clients. Using a Fedora 14 client with both FireFox 12.0 and Chrome Version 19.0.1084.52 as well as Java 7u4 I can connect to the KVM console and type characters into the remote terminal. However, I cannot send arrow keys. This poses problems for editing commands at the remote shell as well as modifying BIOS options.

 

I am able to use the remote KVM feature on Windows with JRE 7 and the arrow keys work correctly. Is there any known issue with this on Fedora / RedHat clients?
